PORTUGEUSE CONQUEST IN THE AMERICAS
The colony of Brazil is on the northeastern side of South America and was colonized by the Portuguese.
BY MADDY JAVIER
The Native Brazilians (indegenous people) inhabitated the land before the Portuguese arrived.
The Portuguse gained the territory along the northeastern coast of South America after the Treaty of Tordesillas with Spain. It wasn't until the French & Dutch began to visit that the land sparked the interest of the King and he began granting large coastal territories to colonize.
There's no way these people can come into our home and force us into slaves for their benefit!
Colonial life in Brazil revolved around the sugar mill or "engenho." Colonists tried to force the natives into heavy labor and work on the plantations.
Native Brazilians resisted Portuguese efforts to force them into servitude and smallpox brought by the colonists killed the population.
Since the indigenous people won't cooperate and plus they're all dying, why can't we just import African slaves for our sugar plantations?
To oversee affairs and implement royal policy of the Portuguese Brazilian government, the King of Portugal dispatched a governor to the colony.
